What do Vogue Japan, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and Jalouse France have in common? Scroll down and you’ll discover how 3 fashion magazine from far-out corners of the world are extremely different, yet very much alike!
Rihanna was awarded with the 2014 Fashion Icon distinction by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Consequently, she’s pretty much everywhere, and not just because of her scandalous, half-dressed Insta/twit/pics. She holds the cover of Jalouse France June/July 2014 and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia July 2014. Fast-forwarding to fall, Linda Evangelista covers Vogue Japan September 2014!
Breaking the norm is a hard thing to do, even by fashion standards! Gathered from the world wide fashion web, 3 different fashion magazines covers used the exact same idea for their cover photo! Both actually went for the same cover girl, but that’s just a marketing trick as Rihanna is such a popular girl right now! (she actually pose for the Jalouse cover while she was attending the Balenciaga show during the Fashion Week in Paris at the beginning of 2014, thus her head-to-toe Balenciaga look).
As per requested numerous times in the past couple of years since the blogging revolution, the pout-pose is starting to fade (thankfully), slowly giving in to the angry pose. For some reason, cover girls are instructed to look mean and unexpectedly aggressive. It is, perhaps, a blow-back of the perpetual fight for girl-power and equality. It is, perhaps, the new attitude of the Millennial generation.
Summing it up with these 3 covers in mind, here’s a brief portrait of the new cover girl: dressed (head-to-toe) in black, looking straight ahead, mean and menacing; wearing some type of (black) head cover; face covered with black fishnet.

Until Linda’s pictorial will be available (hopefully being all kinds of delightful as we’ve been used to see from Linda), let’s all enjoy the after-processing beauty delivered by Rihanna as photographed by Ruven Afanador and styled by Ise White for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.
